I believe this stove is a Country model S210 t-top made around 1990. The manual I found online shows the draft control knob on the left (marked A) but does not show a knob on the right (marked B). Can anyone help me understand the purpose and operation of the knob on the right (B)? Obviously I know next to nothing about wood stoves . . .

I'm not sure what the right side control is for. Given the age this may be a C-40. Is there a UL label on the back?
